Thundarr the Bavarian is a strong German style Hefe-Weisse brewed with the classic Weihenstephan yeast strain known for it’s "Banana" and "Clove" aromas. Of course it’s not BBCO’s intention to offend anyone from a futuristic world of savagery, super science, and sorcery not to mention anyone yielding a fabulous sun sword.

Reid (2648) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 3, 2017
22 oz bottle bought from Safeway in West Salem OR
Pours a clear dull gold with a large frothy/rocky eggshell white head.
Nice aromas of over ripe sweet bananas, spice ( clove?), a little cheesy dough and vanilla.
Taste is at the sweet end of the style..though it bitters up near the end. Not as complaex as the aroma.
Mouth feel could use more carbomnation to keep it from getting sticky in the end..plus a wee bit of off putting alcohol shows.
Not great but i can finish it.

This is pretty much a standard hefeweizen with some beefed up alcohol and a little funk added in. Pours a hazy gold with some head but not as much as you'd expect for the style. Flavors and aromas are typical hefeweizen with a funky/spicy finish. The alcohol is masked well but the body was not creamy enough. I enjoyed it

Bomber, bought in Oregon. Banana aroma with notes of wheat malt, clove and a touch of citrus. Pours clear golden colored with a thin white head that has poor retention and excellent lacing. Starts with big wheat malt flavor with banana sweetness. Finishes smooth and dry with clove and a bit of citrus flavor. Simple hefe, but quite nice.

On tap. Pours out a pale straw color topped with a white head. Nose is clove spice banana bubble gum sweetness and some wet wheat. Taste is more of the nice spices bubble gum sweetness and the classic banana notes.

Just an ok wheat bock style. Pours a bright cloudy yellow with a white head. Smells good, banana, clove. Taste is smooth, but forgettable. Lots of banana. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this is close to a drainpour for me. Little carbonation, no head, golden yellow. Aroma is strongly yeasty and wheaty, not bad. The flavor is overpoweringly sour citrus. Wakes up the sides of my tongue and salivary glands. Would love to find a banana or a clove in here, but the lemon has killed them both. Will probably not drink the rest of the bottle. 650ml in a tulip glass at home.

Aroma was very inticing. Appearance I’d say a nice yellowish orange.taste was very good. I don’t usually enjoy this style of beer but found it very refreshing. Not to light on the palate but not overpowering. Overall I’d say this was a very good beer. Great beer for the summer months.

Hazy golden coloured body with about a zillion bubbles rising from the bottom and a five centimetre tall creamy tan head - looks amazing if not a touch on the clear side. Aroma of yeast, bread, cloves, coriander seed, wheat (tons of it), lemons and some light hints of spices - very nice aroma. Medium to Full-bodied; Very yeastie flavour with a lot of wheat tastes, some subdued bread flavours and a whole lot of banana tastes, coupled with a nice honey sweetness and a blast of lemon and even curacao. Aftertaste is very nice - relatively full-bodied with a rich sweetness, but the wheat and yeastiness comes on hard at the end. Overall, a very nice beer - definitely one to sample if you like the style and you want a big drinking, but still summer and refreshing beer. A great representation with the style and I even sampled it in a German Pinkus glass to give Portland some credit in making a good German-styled beer. My one grudge is the label - please don’t call this ’imperial’ - it’s a very slightly ’larger’ German Hef. Period. Do NOT take a page from Stone’s playbook and think you are god’s gift to humans for creating this beer. It’s nice, but there are plenty of others that fill this void. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 07-December-2013 for US$4.98 sampled at home in Washington on 10-April-2014, two days before leaving back for Germany (among other locales).

Bottle: Big wheatiness, lots of clove, some banana and bubble gum.   Seems also a bit citrusy sweet, spicy, and a little tart.   Take a wheat ale and add in some spiced ale characteristics, and this is what you will get.   More German Hefe flavors than most.   Interesting example, and very welcomed.

Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Bomber, bottled on 10/11/13. Mostly clear paler yellow, fine white foam fades. Mild banana clove, lemon citrus aroma. Fruity peachy taste initially, tart lemon citrus takes over and dominates, thin wit malt and spices. Softer carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. ABV is unnoticeable, finish is sour lemon and flat. This is an Impy?!? Not sure what was trying to be accomplished here. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
